HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, the answers would also go in this section.


Wear Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to wear with regard to comfort, fit, material quality, etc.

When first received, the head was too loose. I couldn’t use the moving jaw feature without it sliding down. After contacting Faris again seeking advice to no avail, I had to consult with a more experienced suiter friend to take matters into my own hands.

Some parts of the mask is sharp, mainly the jaw tends to stab my chin and even scratched me a few times.

Breathing with the mask can be very difficult at times.

Vision is the level you would think it would be for a realistic suit with narrow front view and very poor peripheral as well as seeing below me.

Inside of mask is horrible. Resin blank was poorly trimmed.

Appearance Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to look at with regard to material quality, design, how closely it matches the concept, etc.

Appearance looks good. Fur tends to shed a lot. Shaving looks even.

Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.


Wear Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to wear with regard to comfort, fit, material quality, etc.

Hand paws are way too large for my hands and I sometimes struggle to put them on.

Matching arm sleeves are uncomfortable on the skin.

Appearance Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to look at with regard to material quality, design, how closely it matches the concept, etc.

Hand paws look OK.

Arm sleeves stripes don’t show up as boldly as on the head. I figure this has to do with the fur length.

TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.


Wear Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to wear with regard to comfort, fit, material quality, etc.

Tail is lightweight and sturdy. It sways with ease. No seams visible. Only wish it could have been longer.

Appearance Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to look at with regard to material quality, design, how closely it matches the concept, etc.

Everything looked okay aside from the same airbrushing issue as the armsleeves.

OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.


Product Satisfaction How satisfied the reviewer is with the overall look and feel of the costume in its entirety.

How well does everything fit together and match up?

Despite its shortcomings, it is a well put together suit on the outside. The inside is rather horrendous and sloppy.

The suit is difficult to wear in extended timeframes but matches my vision of her rather well.

Overall Project Quality

It was worth the price however I will never do business with this maker again due to their poor communication and management skills.

Purchase Process Details the interactions between the customer/reviewer and the maker of the item with regard to the buying process.

Initial Contact

Initial contact was through Furaffinity. Initial contact went splendidly but quickly nosedived.

Maker Response Time

Response time was after initial contact was done was horrible. It was constant emailing and messaging to try and get a response, all with a bunch of excuses.

Maker Professionalism

Maker was professional with responses but their response time and constant excuses was anything but professional.

Project Completion Time

I wasn’t satisfied considering the suit was premade with the head and tail. It shouldn’t have taken 5-6 months to get the suit to me when all that needed to be done was the arm sleeves and handpaws.

Final Comments

While Faris makes outstanding suits, I DO NOT recommend going to them for getting a suit. Their lack of communication is appalling as well as how poorly they managed information such as payments j had made and details I asked for. I was also very unhappy of the condition the box the suit arrived in. The box was poorly duct taped with my address poorly scrawled onto it; no label or anything. I was also upset that I was supposed to be given a tracking number when my suit was shipped but was never given one. I was left guessing whether or not the suit was really on the way or if it was lost in USPS limbo.
